The Natural History Museum debuted on April 29, 1993. Vice Mayor George Battey and an unidentified woman pose with the dedication plaque. A Saturday May 1, 1993 Burbank Leader articles reads: "The new $2 million Museum of Natural History of Los Angeles County at Burbank staged a monster sized opening today with an impressive display that could easily be nicknamed 'Land of the Giant Insects.' The facility, at 555 N. Third St., has two levels, the main area downstairs and a 1,700-square foot Discovery Center upstairs for children. The museum, a private-public partnership among the city, Alexander Haagen Co., Los Angeles County and the Natural History Museum, opened to the public amid much fanfare. Celebrity guests included Gary Owens of 'Laugh-In' fame and Eric Boardman from the Disney Channel."
